What Does Agile Working Mean and How Does it Work?

Agile is much more than a buzzword – it’s the key to a productive, balanced and happy workplace. Agile working embraces flexibility on all levels, leaving the old constraints of traditional working life behind.

What is Agile Working? 

Agile working removes the limitations of the traditional 9-5 workday structure. It’s designed to offer flexibility around working hours and location, so employees can complete their tasks when and where they feel most productive.

Agile working is activity-based rather than location-based, giving employees the freedom to decide when and where they work, which tools they use and how they collaborate with their teammates. 

The principles of agile working

1. Flexibility – not just flexible hours and location, but also a flexible mindset to respond to a changing work environment.

2. Resilience – adapting to new concepts, work practices, tools and technologies.

3. Collaboration – employees and teams working effectively together across different locations.

4. Proactivity – anticipating changes and challenges, and finding solutions to these potential issues.
